Nursery Provision at Southville Centre:

The Day Nursery and the Term Time Only Nursery

We're very pleased to share some news about our nursery provision at Southville Centre: In July 2016 Tim Clark, our head of Family Services, attended the Bristol City Council end of year Head Teachers and Leaders celebration event at the Mansion House. He was presented with a Bristol Blue Glass gift by the Lord Mayor for contributions to Early Years Education in Bristol. This included recognition of our Outstanding OFSTED reports, plus reference to work to support the local authority and other schools/nurseries. We were the only voluntary/community education provider to be recognised. Here's a photo of a beaming Tim with the other award winners.

You can read more about the awards here on the Bristol City Council News nb Tim Clark is second from right in the back row.
